Though I learned of Christian Science when I was fifteen and enjoyed Sunday School attendance, I did not seriously study Christian Science until after my second marriage. It was then I joined The Mother Church and a branch Church of Christ, Scientist.

When I was with child and was examined by a doctor, it was found that I had a tumor, which two physicians said must be removed immediately. They said that I must accept the fact that I would lose the child; but if I did not submit to an operation, I would greatly endanger my own life as well. They gave no hope that I could have the child. With this verdict I first said I would have the operation. However, at home I talked with my husband and we agreed I should call a Christian Science practitioner. This I did, and the doctor was dismissed. I had no operation.

The whole time I was waiting for the arrival of the baby I spent in studying Christian Science with the help of the practitioner. Delivery of a son took place in a hospital and was normal in every way. Both the child and I were in good health. There was no longer a tumor. I had been healed in Christian Science. I thank God for this experience and for the strength to stand with Principle. Mrs. Eddy states in Science and Health (p. xi), "The physical healing of Christian Science results now, as in Jesus' time, from the operation of divine Principle, before which sin and disease lose their reality in human consciousness and disappear as naturally and as necessarily as darkness gives place to light and sin to reformation."
